From the leftover fabric after making Dad's mask and bow-tie I was able to make this halter top for me.
Dad's shirt had a stand collar in contrasting fabric which matched the lapel which I just had to use. I settled on using both to bring the blouse together. The Lapel became a focal point for the asymmetric front opening.
The shirt also had double stitching down the front, around the pocket and sleeves. This stitching provided additional detail from blouse front to armhole. Speaking of detail, the peaks were entirely fortuitous as a result of me trying to avoid mango stains to reclaim cloth; I contemplated getting rid of them, but in the end opted for the dramatic.
I paired this with my ankle length jeans and casual shoes for a laid back, sporty look but this top can easily be worn with flared summer whites and sandals, add some chunky jewellery for a less upscale meeting.
